How do you say "list[i]"?
I'm just curious, when you see an expression like list[i], how do you "say" it in your head?
In my head I just say "list i."
I say "list eye". To me it means "index 'i' into an array named 'list'".
I say "toh-mah-toh".
I think "list i". If I'm saying it out loud, I say "list element i". If someone doesn't know how to type it, I say "list elbrack i arbrack". If they don't know what "elbrack" means, I say "left square bracket", and if they still don't get it I say "it's next to the P". They can usually figure out "arbrack" after that.

list at i or list element i work for me.
To be precise, "ordinal 'eye' of the set 'list'."
item i in list
I think "list of what, did I name this variable? why did I name it list?"....search my code for all occurances of list to figure out what the heck it means...
+1 for "list eye"
list sub i
as ankor said. i read it as list sub i
list I for queer guy
List sub eye - an excess of math weeniedom will do that
Do you know, when I first started programming, back on my comp101 days at uni (actually it was comp 130 but this doesn’t sound as good), I was afraid of arrays. I avoided them like the plague….strange child that I was.
Perfectly understandable fear due to common newbie bugs of trying to access an array with an invalid index.
I would think "element i of the array" "which array ?" "that one" "which one ?" "the array called list"
It's not pronouncible in any spoken language.

I say "list sub i".
When I see list[i] in any code or any language I figure I am staring at some data structure indexed to whatever offset i is.
I say "List at I".
